i've only been married to dh for a year and half, and my marriage is already dissolving. Me and dh only fight about one thing ss14. This kid the most cunning, cold, hateful, evil brat i've ever seen, but he's very smart about showing it. To everyone else he's this warm, caring, respectable kid, but to me, he's the complete opposite. bm is not in the picture, so dh has ss all the time.
dh does parent ss, he's not a disney dad. Ss follows the rules, has chores, does this homework. On paper ss is a great kid. He is a great kid to EVERYONE, just not me.
